It is a riddle worksheet where students have an answer bank and they use that to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. Kids like this activities because they make the math meaningful, and FUN, and teachers like them because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.
Because of answer banks for students and answer sheets for adults, this activity is great for homeschool and special ed students too!
In this worksheet, students are given 14 examples with 2 points on the x-y coordinate grid and they must find the equation of the line that passes through both points. In completing the worksheet, they solve the riddle - why did the belt get locked up? - because he held up a pair of pants.
This is a great way to practice finding slope and y-intercept algebraically.
